May 8, 2007Clouds take on the telltale whorl of a summer storm as subtropical storm Andrea formed to become the first named storm of 2007.

Deemed a subtropical storm because it formed outside the tropics, Andrea maintained its status for scarcely more than a day before being downgraded to a subtropical depression.

While it posed no threat of dangerous weather on land, Andrea nonetheless offered little comfort to Georgia and Florida, where a long stretch of unusually dry weather has left the region vulnerable to wildfires.

Andrea formed three weeks before the official beginning of hurricane seasonby no means a record but a possible indicator of a "rough year" for tropical storms in the southeastern U.S., as predicted this week by AccuWeather.
